Common Questions and Answers about Celexa vs wellbutrin xl


Avatar n tn What affects do WellButrin XL have when trying to conceive and during pregnancy? I am 40 and have not tried to conceive at this point; however, I am planning on trying next year and am very concerned.
847422 tn?1238722156 Ive been on Effexor XL 150mg, Wellbutrin 150mg and Trazadone 100mg for about a year now and I am still very depressed; more importantly the following-I still do things without thinking about it that I regret later, I still have suicidal thoughts that come close to the real thing, I still have nightterrors that I wake up to sweating and almost screaming(of deamons and the devil), AND I still am nothing but exusted all day long at work.
Avatar n tn That is why it is a good idea to take it early in the morning and then about 8 hours later but not right before bed. Wellbutrin XL is to be taken once a day and it is an extended release tablet which is why you only need one per day. This medication is not right for everyone, it really depends on your body chemistry and your needs. For example; Wellbutrin is not an SSRI (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) like Paxil, Lexapro, Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, and a few others.
Avatar n tn I have been on wellbutrin xl for a little over a month. I feel like I am starving all of the time! I can't seem to control myself. My mood is better most of the time but I still feel like I could explode! Maybe I haven't been taking it long enough. Before I started taking it I had lost 40 lbs. I have started to regain some of that. Also, the seizures that everyone is talking about is making me a little nervous. I also take metformin.
Avatar m tn Yesterday morning I popped my first Wellbutrin XL. Wellbutrin for those neuro pharmacologically healthy is an AD (antidepressant). First time with ADs, and as mentioned in a previous thread, it's not so much I feel *depressed* as feeling a lack of motivation to get back to what is left of my former life.
Avatar n tn I was put on 150mgs of Wellbutrin XL roughly a month ago. In addition to Wellbutrin XL, I was also taking .5mgs of ativan 2x daily prn, 150mgs Straterra, and 100mgs Lamictal before bedtime. Shortly after taking the Wellbutrin, I began to feel very irritable and angry towards others.
Avatar n tn There are 2 SNRIs, namely Effexor XL and Remeron. Forget about Wellbutrin and its combination since it did not work on you at all. There is no harm trying Buspar. What about Benzo, like Konopin, which will neutralize some of the initial side effects of some antidepressants? Benzo is good if you use it carefully.
Avatar n tn Switched to Wellbutrin XL. first week great, than increased to 300xl for second week. ALL hell broke loose. Had bad heart flips. Went back to 150mgs and heart is good. I also got the brand name stuff. After 2 weeks after the 300xl (and second week on brand name wellbutrin xl 150mgs) i am having sadness and crying spells, mostly in the mornings. Afternoon and evenings I'm great, normal. This is a first for me.
Avatar n tn He instructed me on how to ween myself off of it, so I did exactly what he said, we replaced the Effexor XR with Wellbuterin XL. Anyway, a day or two after I had completely stopped taking the Effexore, I was snapping again, but worse than that, my pain was so bad, I could literally hardly walk, lift my arm, get out of bed. Even with my broken neck and 10.5 hrs of surgery, last year I was walking 6 miles per day...so obviously, this was really over the edge. Went back on the Effexor...I'm fine.
Avatar n tn Befoe going on Effexor, I had gained 20 from other antidpressants (Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa). Since beginning Effexor 1 year ago, I have gained a combined total of 53 pounds. AND YES I EXERCISE AND EAT HEALTHY! At one point I even got a trainer and still couldn't lose weight. I am afraid to go off Effexor because I'm convinced that I'm "A Lifer" as far as needing medication fro depression.
Avatar n tn She says it has helped in every way. I am currently taking Celexa, but that seems to have stopped working lately. Is anyone taking it for "anxiety"?
Avatar n tn I am weaning myself off and have started Wellbutrin XL up to 300mg now. I agree with the withdrawal symptoms. It's almost as if the manufacturer doesn't want us to stop it (more money for them!!) Good luck to everyone.
Avatar f tn Now I have them only if I need them and I have gone months without them I just have to try and keep my head level so I know when I actually need them or if it's my systems craving them. I am now on welbutrin xl 300mg. I started them about a month ago I went off my meds for 8 months because I though I was better...I go back in about a week to my doc. I am not sure what is going to happen.
Avatar f tn Does anyone take Wellbutrin XL with this? How is that working out? I am concerned as take that also.
